Wine Summary Image

Henschke is a wine estate in South Australia that produces a range of wines from the Eden Valley and surrounding subregions. It is particularly known for the intense, full-bodied Hill of Grace, made from Shiraz vines that are up to 150 years old, and its sibling from the Mount Edelstone vineyard. The former is one of the most expensive wines to be made in Australia, whilst the Mount Edelstone Shiraz is often thought of as being similar quality at a more affordable price.

Founded in 1862 by Silesian immigrants, Henschke is one of the oldest wine producers in Australia, and remains under the ownership of the family. Winemaker Stephen Henschke, educated at the Geisenheim Institute in Germany, and his viticulturist wife Prue are generally considered to be among the leading wine authorities in the country.

A wide range of wines are made from a handful of different vineyards, which are farmed according to biodynamic principles. Three of these are in the Eden Valley, in the cooler part of the Mount Lofty ranges just to the east of the Barossa Valley. The Hill of Grace vineyard is regarded as the hallowed ground of the Australian wine industry and has 20 acres (8ha), of which half is planted to low-yielding vines on their own rootstocks. The oldest block is known as the Godfathers; these vines date from the 1860s and are amongst the oldest in the winemaking world. While the Hill of Grace wine is made from Shiraz, the vineyard also has Sémillon, Riesling and Mataro (Mourvèdre) which go into other labels in the portfolio.

The Mount Edelstone Vineyard (anglicized from Edelstein and covering 40 acres) features low-yielding, widely spaced vines planted on their own rootstocks. The Henschke Eden Valley vineyard is located at an altitude of 1600 feet (500m) above sea level and is planted to Bordeaux red varieties, which are the basis of the Cyril Henschke Cabernet Sauvignon, plus Sémillon for the Louis cuvee, Gewürztraminer for the Joseph Hill label and the fruit for the Eleanor's Cottage Sauvignon Blanc.

A 32-acre (13-ha) vineyard at Lenswood in the Adelaide Hills, planted in the mid 1980s, provides Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Merlot and Riesling. Additional fruit is sourced from top growers in the Eden and Barossa valleys and the Adelaide Hills.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Henschke is one of the longest established family names in the Barossa and the Australian wine industry. Johann Christian Henschke first planted vines in Keyneton in 1861, producing his first commercial vintage in 1868.

The tradition of quality winemaking has passed down through the generations – today seeing Stephen Henschke and his wife, Prue, as winemaker and viticulturist respectively.

Awarded "International Red Winemaker of the Year" in 1996 at the London Wine Show, Stephen and Prue were in 2006, awarded Gourmet Traveller WINE magazine's "Winemaker of the Year" in recognition of winemaking excellence in both red and white wines. These Awards recognise the consistent and continuing success of this remarkable couple.

Prue has, for the last 18 years, explored and now employs both organic and biodynamic strategies to maximise the potential for the fruit from these unique vineyards to fully express their individual terroirs.

Cellar Condition

Provenance; “Place of origin; derivation”

  • The history of the ownership of an object, especially when documented or authenticated. Used for Artworks, Antiques, and Wine.
  • The records or documents authenticating such an object or the history of its ownership.

Whenever you buy wine there is an inherent risk, as wine is a perishable good regardless of whether it is sealed under cork or screwcap. At GraysOnline we minimise the risk to you by providing as much information as possible regarding the provenance of the wine we sell.

We take the time to individually inspect each bottle and photograph it so you know exactly what you are buying. All Private Cellar wine stored at GraysOnline is kept in a temperature controlled wine storage area. Any wine that doesn’t meet our quality standards will not be sold.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Wines displaying a 5 star designation are recognised as being of proven quality provenance, our team has verified that the wine has been stored correctly from original purchase straight from the winery, documentation, where possible, has been sighted and cellaring conditions have been inspected. This wine generally comes from only the best and most respected of wine collectors in Australia.

★ ★ ★ ★

Wines displaying a 4 star designation have been cellared correctly as verified by the current owners. In general these wines have been purchased from retailers or traders and stored in cellared conditions from original purchase.

★ ★ ★

Wines displaying a 3 star designation are in good condition when we inspect and we are able to confirm some cellaring conditions but we are unable to verify all ownership and storage conditions of their history.

A wine displaying no stars doesn’t mean that there is a problem with the wine, it simply means that we have been unable to verify provenance, however a quality image is always available for the purchaser to make their own purchasing decisions.

Private Cellar wine is wine which has been stored for aging purposes in a Private Cellar.

Storing the wine and allowing it to age has the potential to improve the quality of the wine. While wine is perishable and capable of deteriorating, storing the wine can alter the aroma, colour, mouthfeel and taste of the wine in a way that may be more pleasing to the taster.
